"A Conversation with God" by Alton Gansky

     The novel, "A Conversation with God" was not at all what I expected it to be. That being said, it was still an excellent read and I found that I could not put it down. The book gives the readers a chance to get answers to many different questions from God and other educated biblical scholars. Some of the questions included in the book are:
What is Heaven like?
Who really rules this Earth God, You or Satan?
If you love us why do we suffer?
     Each answer is drawn from within the text of the Bible, and most answers provide scripture references, which are inconveniently located in the back of the text. My feelings as I read this book were pretty mixed. The theology, for the most part, was good and there are many sections that Christians could really benefit from reading. That being said, I did not like how some questions were in the point of view of God. The author does state that "no one can speak for God but God, but as I was reading the novel, it seemed like he was trying to speak for God and for other important biblical figures as well. All in all, it was a good read, and with the right mindset and idea of what the book is all about, it is a very beneficial for all Christians to read. 

I received this book for free from BookSneeze.com, for this honest review.
